This video portrait is is one of a series for
the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) at
CUNY, a program to help underrepresented minorities acheive a

it's part of a national initiative to increase diversity in Academia
and Industry. Rich Able is a perfect example of the potential
of this program.
